HBO Max Cancels Peacemaker Red Carpet Event Amid Omicron Rise

January 4, 2022

The ghost of Covid past is returning to haunt the start of 2022. Along with Sony’s postponing of Morbius, HBO Max has canceled the planned red carpet premiere for James Gunn’s Peacemaker series. Obviously, the series itself will still arrive on the platform on January 13th, but the recent rise in Omicron cases reportedly led to the cancelation of the event, which was due to take place on Saturday in Los Angeles. According to Deadline, the event was effectively canceled prior to the holidays, with Covid cases already starting to increase.
